Open source software is a fundamental mechanism for storing and disseminating knowledge. This role is critical to science and is arguably equally, if not more, important than traditional publication venues in terms of practical and long-term impact. Well-constructed software libraries are repositories of both practical and theoretical content that not only serve data analysis but also help educate current and future scientists which substantially augments traditional publication. Highly software-engineered resources such as BLAS, Armadillo, Eigen, SciPy, R and its packages, Theano and many more are critical to the science of the Large Hadron Collider, Human Genome Project, the Human Connectome Project, and to smaller projects conducted at Universities throughout the world.
